Our Beef with Tropical Deforestation: Policies to protect global forests
5:00 - 6:00pm EDT
Tropical forests are critical for the planet, but they’re in danger. Each year, an area the size of Portugal is deforested in the tropics. Policymakers and companies in the United States can act to mitigate tropical deforestation
Join us for a virtual event discussing the importance of tropical forests and the policies governments and corporations can take to protect them. We’ll be joined by Assemblymember Ash Kalra, sponsor of the California Deforestation-Free Procurement Act; Justin Flagg, Director of Communications and Environmental Policy for NY State Senator Liz Krueger; Glenn Hurowitz, CEO of Mighty Earth; Sammy Herdman, Campaign Associate for Environment America; and Annie Sanders, Director of Shareholder Advocacy for Green Century Capital Management.
After you RSVP, you will receive an email with the Zoom information to join at the time of the event.
